    As the new owner of a splitboard, skins, poles and a seemingly endless list of other backcountry just-in-case stuff. I'm keen to get the legs working on some touring. Arrive tommorrow, Saturday 21st for a week.

    Any other splitboarders or ski tourers keen for a trip out the back of Kosci or DHG if weather and conditions are kind? Wednesday is looking promising.

    Not interested, but I'll put my 2c in that your better to go play on the knolls on the high plains above thredbo than DHG... Given the distinct lack of snow (everywhere but especially below 1600 meters).

    I am in, Pini. Would you be going the one way, or do you have a pass?

    Went for a wander with sourmash this afternoon. Its pretty horrible, but nice views. I would say not worth wasting a whole day on Pini. Waste of $30 bucks for you IMO.

    If you take a fall on that you could really hurt yourself.

    Icey as, diabolical springs to mind, great way to test some new kit, about as hard going as it gets. Pini txted me from Kosi on Sunday, 'good exercise'.

    Heading out
